One thing I always recommend when gearing up for a big event, such as a photoshoot with Belle Boudoir, is to *never* try any new products within one week of your big day. This would include everything from face wash and serums to shampoo and body wash. Many of us have sensitivities and/or allergies to ingredients we aren’t yet aware of, or we are aware but the ingredients can be lurking in small amounts inside your new body exfoliator or warm brown eyeshadow (red lake #40 is a big one!). And trust me, the last thing you want is a red rash all the way down your neck and back from a new shampoo! So stick to the tried and true and save the new products for after your big day!
